About Our Practice

the team at Kahana Oculoplastic & Orbital Surgery

Our History

Kahana Oculoplastic and Orbital Surgery was established at the end of 2021 by Dr. Kahana after 15+ years in practice in Southeast Michigan. The providers and staff aim to provide exceptional medical and surgical care to patients with disorders of the eyelids, orbit, and the lacrimal system.

What Sets Us Apart

Nationally and internationally renowned for scientific research and innovative surgical techniques, Dr. Kahana and his team have the type of experience that would typically be associated with a major academic medical center, but with the accessibility and personal touch that you’d expect from a high-end private practice.

Our mission at Kahana Oculoplastic and Orbital Surgery is to help patients look better, see better, and feel better. We aim to treat every patient as if they were a member of our own family. We treat our patients with respect and dignity, we listen, and we care. We also partner with a variety of clinical trials to assist patients with treatment options for their thyroid eye disease.
